Description

Priory Park has lovely gardens, a large and well laid out playground with separate areas for children of different ages, a dog-free area (the Philosophers Garden), paddling pool, tennis courts, and a cafe. The paddling pool is quite large and is just in front of the cafe, so parents of older children can sit at one of the many outdoor tables and have a coffee or lunch while the children splash around. Parents of children still in nappies should be warned that there are no baby changing facilities. Music sessions run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at the cafe.

Children up to the age of 8 years can play in the paddling pools and water play feature and parental supervision is necessary at all times. Other rules and restrictions will apply and are detailed at individual sites.

Opening Times

Monday – Sunday 8.00am – dusk

The paddling pool is open for the late May bank holiday, through to the end of September, depending on the weather. If there are any changes to these planned dates they will appear on the Haringey Council website.

    We had a lovely day in Priory Park with my kids aged 2, 5 and 8. The paddling pool is nice, decent sized (I would say similar to the one in King George Recreation Ground), in a gated area that houses the cafe and toilets. There are no baby changing facilities as far as I could tell. The playground is nice. For older kids, there’s a small climbing frame with slide, zip wire and swings. For younger ones, there’s a small climbing frame with slide and swings. There are two roundabouts and another small climbing frame that sits in a sandpit. Parking was a little tricky. Many of the surrounding roads was Residents Permit between 10am – 12pm. I found a few pay and display bays but these were maximum stay for 1 hour only! In the end, I parked in Ashford Avenue which is very close to the main entrance and was able to park for free all day!
